The operation is a very expensive one, and he finds that his meager savings are not sufficient to defray the cost, so he hurries to his brother.

Holds the audience silent from the beginning to the end
12 December 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This theme has been utilized before, but never so satisfactorily. A blind girl is afforded means for having her sight restored by her ill- favored lover. He is fearful of the effect upon her when she sees him and induces his handsome brother to act in his place when the bandage is removed from the girl's eyes. The excellence in this picture lies in the fact that the girl is true to her lover, even though his features are not handsome. The play is filled with emotional scenes and holds the audience silent from the beginning to the end. The acting is sympathetic and strong in its simplicity and the beauty of character and strength of love are adequately exemplified. - The Moving Picture World, April 1, 1911
